SSA updates 1696 Appointment-of-Representative form

On February 11, 2020, SSA published a revised version of the SSA-1696 (Claimant’s Appointment of a Representative). The revised form also collects direct payment information previously collected on the Form SSA-1695 (now obsolete) using registered representatives’ credentials (RepID). SSA also created two supplemental forms for revocations and withdrawals (SSA-1696-SUP1, Claimant’s Revocation of the Appointment of a Representative and SSA-1696-SUP2, Representative’s Withdrawal of Acceptance of an Appointment respectively).
